How was it for Creed to be at the breeders? Does he recognize her, the kennels, and/or the other dogs? How does that impact the two of you? You said that Creed originally wasn't 'interested' in you as the breeder was His Person, so how has that changed now that you're His Person?
He loves his Grandma Traci!
He loves his brother Grits significantly less. Grits returns the feeling. Doozie his mother was completely indifferent. Knox, his 10 week old half brother, just went NEW FRIEND!!!! :D!!!!! at him.
It’s been my experience that well raised puppies grow into adults that recognize and remember their breeders. Creed loves his breeder more than pretty much anyone else, except me. All of her puppies have grown into dogs that instantly recognize her and begin wiggling.
He also recognized her house and property, and had fun running around her woods and fields revisiting his puppyhood home. He settled well in her house and gave zero shits about her walking around outside my room or his brother kicking up a fuss whenever he remembered that Creed existed in his house.
